We’ve been to Mama’s so many times. Mama’s was our first ever review, back in early 2009. But this is the first time we’ve been by bicycle, ridden on 21 August 2011.
On the way, we stopped to look at these neat motorcycles.
Then we found this areal survey target. That’s really neat. There’s a lot of things I’ve never seen before, and this is one of them.
And here we are, front-door parking!
It’s just me and Ivo, as you’ve probably figured out since we’re on the bike. We had a good laugh, Ivo and me, about how we have these here car keys, but no car. Hahahahahahaa! That’s funny!
Now, I’m not going to lie to you. Ivo already had breakfast before we left the house. But that never stopped him from wanting to just “have a look at the menu.”
Of course, this waiting for breakfast thing gets old. So Ivo started eating the menu.
Seriously, just gnawing down on it like it’s made of pancake or something.
Have to wash that down with some water. Now you, faithful reader, may have noticed that Ivo usually has a bottle. Or at least a sippy-cup. Not today. In the finest of guerrilla-dad traditions, I brought him without any change of diaper or clothes, no toys. no food, no sippy cup, no bottle, no baby-anything.
So have a drink of water, kid. Let’s see where this goes.
Still learning this one.
But we’ve got this one working pretty good.
This is a simple breakfast for us at Tampa Bay Breakfasts. But it’s just me and Ivo, and like I said, he’s already ate.
Not that you’d notice by how he’s teaching this pancake a lesson.
Ivo’s thing now is to give you things and then let you give it back to him. Hours of fun. It even works with a wad of pancake he takes out of his mouth.
This game is fun, but it’s the intensity on his face that I love most. Fun AND important.
And we all know that little boys need a coffee in the morning. Ivo’s already looking for the go-juice.
Here’s Vicky. We love Vicky. She is our favorite waitress in all of Tampa Bay.
Here’s Vicky with Marek back in 2009.
Loaded up and ready to head home. I love the parking here.
On the way home, we ran into this neat old Dodge. Not literally, just as we passed it by on the sidewalk.
We live a few miles from Mamas. A full belly and a long, soothing ride makes a boy sleepy. If you’re a little impressed that Ivo’s sleeping on the bike, you should be even more impressed that I took this picture while pedaling. I’m still not sure how I managed it.
It’s another five pancake rating for Mamas’ on Florida. Really, it’s a 4 or 4.5 pancake place, but Vicky gets a full pancake point all her own. Go get some breakfast, and tell ’em Andy and Ivo sent you! And Marek, too, of course.
The car looks a little like your Stuttgart Duck! I can see how you remained focused for that.
haha, what an awesome post… those are some incredible shots! He’s making me hungry…
